ACDC – versus – the highway to hell….?
acdc played ireland june 28th 2009. Everything that could go wrong on ‘the organisers’ part did. The question is… was it worth it?
Firstly, I dont want to take away from the band themselves and the music… most important to me….. but when one pays €153 just to get there. I also bought a car park ticket that I didn’t use. Instead I got the bus. Another €40 for me and John. Throw in some food and a few drinks and you have a pretty expensive day. I work darned hard for my extra spondulas.
No matter what….. I did get to see ACDC. They are legends. And for that it was worth it but… similar to the saga that existed when Oasis played I guess it simply left a bad taste in my mouth.
The question will always be ‘so how was the ACDC gig’? And I suppose the answer will always be…. ‘yeah they were good but….’
The problem? It baffles me how it existed. I don’t know how it took a bus almost 4 hours to get ***near*** Punchestown. I then walked ran approximately 3 kilometres along with so many others who had missed the entire support acts [plural], afraid we would miss ACDC as well. So at least I got to see ACDC you say….? Yes that still remains. And always will. Never mind the 20 minutes Q to get a pint of beer.
What the flip is going on? Can the people who organise…. not organise. They must have known due to pre-booked bus tickets and obviously the pre booked car-park tickets how many vehicles would be attending?It angers me. But the answer still is, I guess, I did get to see one of the most legendary bands ever to exist. I can now proudly add that to my list of greats now including The Rolling Stones and The Sex Pistols.
